Crispy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Cordon Bleu is a Foreign dish, which I think originated in Switzerland. The original Cordon Bleu is veal, pounded thin and wrapped around in ham and cheese then breaded and deep fried. Chicken cordon bleu is a variant and uses chicken fillet instead. It is also wrapped around in ham and cheese. Because of it’s popularity, it made it’s way to us and also became our favorite.

To cook this dish; Pound chicken breast to flatten. Season with salt and pepper then set aside. In a bowl, season flour with salt and pepper. In another bowl, season breadcrumbs with salt and pepper. Arrange bowls in this order: seasoned flour, beaten eggs and seasoned breadcrumbs. Line flattened chicken breast with sliced ham. Place cheese stick on top and tuck in edges of chicken and form into a log. Dip chicken in the seasoned flour mixture, then dip in beaten egg and dredge in seasoned breadcrumbs. Freeze. Fry in hot oil until cooked. Drain on paper towel lined pan. See below for the complete recipe with the list of the ingredients with exact measurements.
